ABBY INGLETT is originally from Wisconsin, and grew up taking ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, and contemporary classes for 13 years in La Crosse. Quickly discovering her passion for ballet, she joined the pre-professional Ballet La Crosse where she studied with her late mentor and teacher, Kennet Oberly (Stuttgart Ballet) and his wife Larissa Oberly (Estonia National Ballet). Abby spent her summers dancing with the Classical Ballet Academy of Minnesota, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, The Nutmeg Conservatory for the Arts, and the University of Utah, her alma mater. While studying at the University of Utah, Abby had the opportunity to perform featured roles in many classical and contemporary works such as La Vivandiere, Press Against the Glass, and Ebb & Flow. In the spring of 2021, she graduated magna cum laude with her BFA in Ballet and minor in Disability Studies. After graduating, Abby was one of eight featured dancers from around the world cast in Mute, Dissonance Dance Theatre’s film about dancing through COVID-19 in 2020. Shortly following, she moved across the country and began her first season with Ballet Spartanburg! Her favorite role during the 21-22 season was Dewdrop in The Nutcracker, and she is so excited for what’s in store for the 22-23 season!
